Ex-Superintendent Files US$26k Action of Debt Against LNP

By Comfort M. Johnson

MONROVIA June 15 (LINA) - The former Superintendent of Sinoe County, Thomas Romeo Quioh, has sued the Liberia National Police for US$26,000 allegedly owed him in rental arrears.

The amount covers rental arrears of his hotel which officers of the Police Support Unit (PSU) have occupied since June 2014 without payment, he claims.

Quioh filed the action of debt against the LNP on June 5 with the Debt Court at the Temple of Justice on Capitol Hill in Monrovia.

The facility is said be occupied by officers of the Police Support Unit (PSU) assigned in the county.

According to former Superintendent Quioh, the PSU have since June 14, 2014 occupied his hotel without fulfilling the terms of the agreement to pay US$25.00 per night per room.

He noted that the police officers moved in the building upon the request of the Sinoe County Police Commander with the understanding that as commander he was to get to the administration to arrange a lease contract, but failed to do so.

Following the action of debt filed against the LNP, State lawyers filed a motion to dismiss the action of debt against the Police because the venue of action is cardinal in the determination of authority of a court of law.

Prosecution further stated that accordingly for any and all action filed before a court to be considered legal, the court must first have jurisdiction over the subject matter and the person sued.

However, Judge James A. Jones denied the motion filed by state lawyers, saying that although the notice of assignment was served and returned, the defendants have failed to appear to argue the motion, adding that the motion is denied and disallowed and the case hereby ordered to be proceeded with.

During the call of the case, Judge Jones ruled the case to full trial, stating that the case will commence on Tuesday June 20.
